cooperate with us in the investigation and does this libyan government have the will and capacity to have the suspects involved and i think they have to strain the capacity to try to arrest powerful armed elements in the eastern part of the country and i don't know if they have it even if they have the will to use that capacity. can you tell us after the attack that they are trying to bring the culprits to justice, what do you think of the libyan government. >> you drew exactly the right description. is it well or capacity? what you need is both. i found the libyan officials to be willing, but without capacity. part of our challenge is to help them build greater capacity because it's about them. it's not only about what happened to us in benghazi which every official in the libyan government was deeply upset about, but they have their own problems now. they are having leaders attack and assassinated on a regular basis. we have to do more to build up the security capacity and i would ask this committee to work with us. there holds on a lot of the security funding that go to kwlab to assist

. how do you gauge that? how does the government gauge that? what can be said in order to make that a reality? guaranteeing drones, a fence? something of that issue i think will really be something to focus on moving forward. >> all right. luke, always a pleasure. serious luke today, huh? joining us now is republican marsha blackburn who prefers to be called congressman. how are you today, congressman? >> i'm well. i'm well. >> so we have a four-page proposal that republicans are behind or some republicans on the hill are behind. are you on board with the proposal? >> i'm one of those republicans that is -- i'm going to be waiting to see what the details are and bear in mind, also, we have had a working group in the house and they will probably bring their proposals out next week or so and i'm looking forward to hearing what they have to say. there are many of us that have said for years this needs to be fixed. we want to make certain there's no preferential treatment. want to make certain that people are in the queue, have the opportunity to complete their process so let's see what

rules by the government are one size fits all, any government determination of an individual's abilities must be based on a bureaucratic assessment of the lowest possible denominator. i think that's exactly what we have done in response to these mass shootings. solving this problem is something the government, bureaucratically knows it can't really do and offers up the bureaucratic solutions that don't really address any of the existential problems here and maybe not doesn't matter what politically possible or what's popular but what should actually be done. >> well, i strongly agree. i think what's the point of what i'm writing. right now, you have a host of democrats who do not appear to be voting on their conscience. they're voting on electoral, you know, the fear of electoral politics. >> right. >> in this sin stance, that's not supported. i don't know the right answer. i'm from the west. i, you know, know plenty of people with guns. i don't have visceral opposition to people owning firearms. >> right. >> but i think that senators should make up their minds based on the substance of

but culturally, some places have real problems. governance is bad and south america, for example, that's where foreign policy comes in to it. we have to work with governments to make things better in their own countries and an investment of soft power looking at sequestration and look at when's important. border, working with allies to stop certain terrorist acts and using soft influence to make things better for folks in latin america. >> colonel, ronald reagan promised border security and i think a lot of republicans feel a little disillusioned about that. and when you talk about our allies -- >> right. >> -- obvious to the south, mexico, on the board and brian terry, what are the kinds of things we should be asking of mexico? what are the kinds of solutions we should be looking to mexico to bring to the table to solve a mutual problem? >> glad you brought that up. my next book, it comes out in june, we talk about regarding criminal and terrorist activity and what should be done by the friendly governments. frankly, they have to do more to help their people want to stay in mexi

senator and helping the north korean government. she declined to indict him and didn't think that that guy holds up on the stand and referred it to the senate ethics committee. they severely admonished him and then a prosecutor's memo said that it found the accusations against bob torricelli to be materially credible. the party panicked. they forced him out of the party. i think we have a ten-second clip. this is the implosion of bob torricelli ten years ago. here it is. >> when did we become such an unforgiving people? how did we become a society when a person can build credibility your entire life to have it question ed by someone whose wod is of no value at all? when did we stop believing and entrusting in each other? >> it's a guy whose career launched of a student election. >>> could potted plant bs the answer? a plan for making the schools safer that you have never heard before. jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh.

pretty much govern the people who are safe, who are sane, who handle a weapon in a responsible manner. and again, time and again when we see these mass shootings, we see the crimes against another person, these are not gun owners who have gone through safety courses. these are not people with a legitimate permit to carry. 300 million guns in america. 310 million americans. those guns are out there. and until we change the culture and until we change the mentality of using guns to resolve conflict, we're going to see more and more of these type of shootings. whether it's a mass murderer or whether it's two people either on the streets of chicago or a texas community college try to resolve conflict at the tip of a gun. >> clint, the vast majority of these shootings that we're talking about are young men who are about 16, 17 to 25 years old. what is it about the psychology, the ego, the testosterone of being a young man that makes this come to this young violence head so often? >> well, you know, when we're young i think we think we're bulletproof. i recall being 16, 17 years old and bei
